The Nia White Belt Training is the first level of a five-belt training series that presents a body-centered approach to health, wellness and fitness. If you have a desire to share Nia in a professional capacity, the White Belt Training is your entryway into teaching. Those who choose to pursue the path of personal enrichment use this training as a starting point for becoming a master student.

Over the course of one week, you will comprehensively explore physical sensation through five core-competency areas of study including movement, music, anatomy, science and philosophy. This joyful journey into the self is instrumental in helping you develop body knowing by learning to listen, interpret and consciously respond to the information your body communicates to you via sensation. Enroll in an upcoming training today, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.

Upon graduation, you are eligible to become a livelihood member. As a livelihood member, you obtain a teaching license (whether you decide to use it or not) and have exclusive access to an in-depth continuing education program, an online forum, and special benefits and privileges. You may enroll in the Green Belt Training - which is dedicated to the craft of teaching - at any time after completing your White Belt Training. You may also enroll in the next level of training, Blue Belt Training.

Maureen a toujours aimé danser et bouger. Pendant ses études de médecine, elle a suivi des cours de danse contemporaine et africaine. Plus tard, elle a pratiqué le Yoga, le Qi Gong, le Ski, et la Randonnée mais suite à un accident de voiture, des opérations sur le dos et au genou et à la progression précoce d’arthrose, elle n’était plus capable de continuer ses activités sportives comme avant et elle avait pris du poids. Heureusement, en 2001, elle a découvert le NIA. ...

Maureen a toujours aimé danser et bouger. Pendant ses études de médecine, elle a suivi des cours de danse contemporaine et africaine. Plus tard, elle a pratiqué le Yoga, le Qi Gong, le Ski, et la Randonnée mais suite à un accident de voiture, des opérations sur le dos et au genou et à la progression précoce d’arthrose, elle n’était plus capable de continuer ses activités sportives comme avant et elle avait pris du poids. Heureusement, en 2001, elle a découvert le NIA. C’est le coup de foudre. Cette technique qui est basé sur la Joie du Mouvement correspondait exactement à ce qu’elle recherchait pour solutionner ses problèmes physiques et retrouver la forme; Elle en obtient les différents grades y compris la ceinture noire en 2006. Jusqu’en 2008 elle exerçait le métier de médecin aux États-Unis (MD) avec la spécialité de “Familly Practice”. Elle a un D.E.S.S. en Santé Publique, le Diplôme Interuniversitaire d’Acupuncture de l’Université de Montpellier et un Master de Médecine Orientale de Southwest Acupuncture College. Elle est aussi professeur certifié de Hatha Yoga.
Mariée avec un Français, elle vit maintenant en Ardèche et, avec enthousiasme, elle participe au développement du NIA en France. Elle organise des cours et des stages de NIA dans le sud de l’Ardèche. En 2011 elle est devenue formatrice de ceinture blanche. Maureen reste Médecin dans l’âme et elle se félicite de pouvoir continuer à travailler pour la bonne santé de ses sembla par le biais du NIA:

I was born with ants in my pants and a passion for freedance from the time I could walk.  Not interested in classical dance studies I kept on dancing on my own while pursuing a career in medicine. Trained both as Board certified Family Physician and Doctor of Oriental Medicine with a lifelong committment to holistic health I fell in love with Nia since my very first class in 2001.  I was an overweight, stressed out, over forty  professional on adownward health spiral. Nia's practice of the Joy of Movement brought me back to my own body and greater and greater fitness potential.  It has since become my self-healing practice and passion. I did my first White Belt for personal growth in 2002 and later fell in love with teaching Nia. I went on to complete my Blue, Brown and Black Belts and have been teaching Nia to all comers no matter what age, fitness level or body type since 2003.  I am also currently a certified Hatha Yoga teacher.  I feel gratefell to be able to share this amazing healing practice to others as a teacher ad White Belt trainer.
